Wenger: Tottenham gave Arsenal the chance to catch City

Arsene Wenger was relieved his Arsenal side made the most of the opportunity provided to them by Tottenham to close the gap on league leaders Manchester City.
> Pep Guardiola’s City side lost their first game of the season earlier on Sunday as Tottenham claimed an impressive 2-0 win, leaving Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs as the only remaining unbeaten side in the top flight.

>
> Tottenham’s win also gave Arsenal the chance to close the gap on the top two – which they eventually managed when Laurent Koscielny scored in stoppage time to secure a 1-0 win over Burnley.
>
> The result leaves Arsenal a point behind Spurs and two behind Manchester City and with Wenger relieved his side made the most of the league leaders’ first slip.
>
> “It’s a big win because City lost today,” Wenger said. “We were five points behind them and when you are five points behind a top quality team, when you have an opportunity to get a bit closer you cannot miss it. And that would’ve been the negative aspect of our game today had we not won.
>
> “I must say, I am long enough in the job to know that you feel disappointed if you are in Burnley’s shoes because they gave absolutely everything and you can understand that they are a bit gutted to lose a game like that because they had put all the effort in to get the result.”
